Update on the Pre-weathered kits
7 months ago – Fri, Sep 29, 2023 at 04:33:09 AM

Dear Backers,

Thank you for patiently waiting for the updates. 

After rigorous testing we have decided to implement a change in the way the pre-weathered kits go together. 

In our campaign we showed that each panel of plaster had to be manually inserted using a jig to aid with alignment. What we realized was, is that this is a very cumbersome process that is hard on the fingers and also requires a certain amount of skill and experience to use.  It very quickly became frustrating to assemble, keeping in mind that most of the timbered buildings had more than 300 panels to insert. 

To overcome this problem , without losing any detail, we have implemented a system where the pre-weathered texture is directly rendered onto the surface of the inner wall that faces outwards. This results in a far more pleasant build with significant savings in time. 

See photo below for more details: 

The panel on top is the old style where each panel of plaster was inserted one by one. The panel below is where the weathering is rendered directly onto the panel behind. 

Production Update:

A majority of the models have been transitioned from prototype to production ready designs with only a few pending. The new dual head machine has been on fire  producing the kits. Our team has been through quite a rollercoaster ride trying to keep up with it. We are so thankful to our hardworking design team who have brought us so far

Latest Progress and Production Updates
10 months ago – Fri, Jul 07, 2023 at 07:34:12 AM

Hello Backers,

This update serves to provide you with the most recent developments in our production processes.

The dual-head machine we integrated is fully functional now, and it has effectively increased our production capability. This enhancement in machinery is contributing to a more efficient workflow.

To manage the increased pace of production, our team has been expanded. This allows us to maintain the balance between production, quality checks, and packing processes, ensuring each aspect is managed adequately.

The production of our 3D-printed items is proceeding according to the timeline.

Furthermore, we have completed the production of Pro texture sets for the following models: Chapel, Barn, Rickety Arms, Cruck House, and Cow Shed.

Rickety Arms frames stacked for quality check and packing.

Your ongoing patience and support are appreciated. We remain committed to keeping you updated regularly with our progress.

Best regards,

Team I Built It
